The Northern Adelaide Plains, including the suburbs of Angle Vale and Virginia, is perfectly positioned to become a global leader in intensive food production.
The maturity of the industry, the proximity to markets and the natural growing conditions provide competitive advantages that have enabled the region to develop the largest covered cropping area in Australia.
This zone generates over one-third of South Australia’s horticulture production, approximately 170,000 tonnes of fresh produce, valued at over $340 million per year.
At the gateway to the Barossa Valley, the City of Playford is home to a number of wineries taking advantage of the favourable growing conditions.
